The Drexel Welcomes Jeremy Henthorn as Director

Friends of the Drexel announced that Jeremy Henthorn has been selected as the Drexel's new executive director. Currently executive director of the Columbus International Film and Animation Festival at the Columbus College of Art and Design and a resident of Bexley, Henthorn holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. He will begin his new role with the Drexel on Monday, July 16, 2018.

"From the time I was a teenager, the Drexel has defined the cinematic experience for me,” stated Henthorn. “As a film festival programmer, I have screened dozens of films at the Drexel over the past several years, and witnessed first-hand its value to the audience, as well as to visiting filmmakers. From its gorgeous interior to its carefully curated programs, the Drexel is Columbus’ house of cinema, and I am excited for the opportunity to grow and share that experience with everyone.”

We're looking forward to the Drexel's newest addition. Congratulations, Jeremy!
